as we reported earlier, the san jose police are basically assisting the san jose city college campus police. they are conducting a campus widowed. police say officers are going from building to building looking for this reported shooter. the initial call came from one person who did not identify themselves. important thing that policement to say is they have not had any reports of shots fired. they have not had any reports of any victims reported. we've been talking to faculty members. they say that basically they are only going by the initial information they were given by campus police that there is a search going on for a possible gunman. they say the scene is hectic but everyone is staying pretty calm. at this point it's been going on for a little while. they say they haven't had anything really new to report except for just waiting to see what happens. one thing that one of the faculty members pointed out to me was that just a couple of months ago they had an active shooter training session involving local police and law enforcement and the campus police. in terms of faculty and

times. his focus on steadfast on balancing the budget, reforming city pensions and working hard on economic development and job retention. he is making city government more responsive and efficient and making public safety a top priority. mayor lee is a long time public servant. prior to becoming mayor, he served as city administrator where he focused on government efficiency and measures and reforms that reduced the size and cost of government. mayor lee first began working for the city and county of san francisco in 1989 as the investigator for the city's first whistle blower program. prior to employment with the city and county of san francisco, he was the managing attorney for the asian law caucus. i first met ed in 1992 when he became the executive director for the human rights commission and we were both 16. that's two decades ago, ed. i watched him soon become the director of city purchasing and then going on to become the director of public works. i think ed is the only mayor in city history that can carry tlau on the campaign promise to fill the potholes because
're adding to the city wide resiliency. >> >> what does that mean? >> that's a great question. what spur has done is look at that in terms of recovery and in new orleans with katrina and lost many of the people, hasn't recovered the building stock. it's not a good situation. i think we can agree and in san we want to rebuild well and quickly after a major disaster so we have defined what that means for our life lines. how do we need the gasolines to perform and water perform after an earthquake and the building stock as well, so we have the goal of 95% of our homes to be ready for shelter in place after a major earthquake, and that way people can stay within the city. we don't lose our work force. we don't lose the people that make san francisco so special. we keep everybody here and that allow us to recover our economy, and everything because it's so interdependent. >> so that is a difficult goal but i think we can achieve it over the long time so thank you very much for hosting us and hosting this great exhibit, and .hank you very much for joining >> (roll call). we have a quorum and the
put up to protect city residents, visitors and the park land during the construction. this is a very large event with very large heavy machinery operating throughout various times of the event. and fencing is frankly required, as it would be at any construction site, during the build and the tear down. in recent years we've actually encouraged another planet to be more deliberate during the construction of the events, whereas three years ago we began the construction on the friday before the event. our gardeners over the last few years have advocated for us to begin that construction a couple days earlier so that it can go at a slower pace and we can be ensured the park is protected better. we do work to minimize the impact of the fencing. it is phased, the construction, so it begins in the polo fields and expands out into the surrounding meadows as the construction begins in those meadows. we do work after the event to then phase the breakdown so that the breakdown happens in that surrounding meadows, first in those meadows reopen to the public first, and it is completed lastly at t
and government code. each year the city needs to confirm its appropriations limit under the gan provisions. in this calculation we have done, it reflects through calculations allowed by the state code that we have a 3.77% local income growth and an 0.4% -- 0.47% population growth and this allows for combined growth in the gam limit from the amount that you established last year of 2.53 billion to a new level of 2.63 billion for fiscal year 12-13. under the allowable calculations, we have shown that the budget for appropriations that are covered by this is at currently 2.47 billion, so this reflects a level still 168 million below the gam limit. if the city were to collect so much revenue that it was above the gam limit, the law would require us to either change the rates to return or some other way return that excess revenue to tax payers or go to voters to ask voters to approve an increase in the limit, but we have not reached that point yet. a couple of other points you might be interested in, we did look back at fiscal year 11-12 with the initial budget we expected to be well over 200 m
the incredible culinary culture in our city. a conversation started a few speakers ago about the local factor of the festival. i just want to say typically my strategy for acquiring new vendors is to start in the neighborhood around the park and work my way out. so, alan had mentioned, you know, pacific [speaker not understood], new ganges, [speaker not understood], there's definitely some other ones, but this year we had the pizza place, noriega, which is more in the neighborhood of 25th that we're talking about before. one of the things i do every year is invite people for the following year to try to bring some new folks out there and three of the people that i invited this year are in that exact part of the sunset. so, trouble coffee company, outer lands and java beach. so, you have my commitment that i'll be more aggressive about bringing those kind of businesses in. they don't always say yes, but we always start with them and sort of work our way out. i've gotten incredible feedback from both fans of the event. they get to try food they normally wouldn't try, number one, just because of
our public schools despite all the range of new issues, i must respond to at city hall. just one sad thing and i wish i had a little more time to accomplish -- it's going to be on tonight's agenda as first reading. it's an opportunity for us to make a statement that we do care about people who live in the city. we do care about people who stay in the city and we do care about people, in particular, people of minority businesses and businesses run by women in the city to have opportunities to take advantage -- not take advantage, but opportunities to earn the money that us the residents in san francisco put into for our facilities bond measure. so this one sad thing and i won't be able to vote on even though i'm a co-author and hopefully people see the light in that approach of supporting, in particular, everybody in san francisco, but in particular minority and women businesses. i will stop at that. i just want to thank you for indulging me and letting me say something. and hopefully, in the future it's not like i'm going to walk away from public education. i love public educati
december 13th, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at city hall, we will be celebrating with all of our schools and school communities, teachers, parents, principals, the fact that sfusd is one of only two large urban school systems in the state of california to have surpassed the 800 api mark. [ applause ] so we're tremendously proud of our students and teachers and communities and principals. so we're going to get together and celebrate. and we're going to celebrate that, but we're also going to recognize schools that are on the move, schools that are closing the achievement gap for african-american and latino students and those with growth. so there will be lots of celebrating going on and we're going to recommitment to closing the achievement gap. because, as much as we're going to celebrate, we're also going to be very clear about the fact that we have a long way to go, but that we have the right people on the bus and the bus is heading in the right direction and we're going to add some gas to the bus on thursday. so we want to invite everybody to come and join us. >> can i just one thi

and a solution that would provide the kind of transit efficiency for the city, and i'm also in support of having no extractions in north beach. speaking directly to the proposed resolution today, the three appreciatevxeses, preference number 1 is to evaluate option 4 which is a favorite option so far from what i have heard. however, the way that the resolution was written, much has to depend on whether additional environmental review is necessary. and as of today from mr. funge's report or update, it appears that it may be, it may be not. [speaker not understood]. let's put it that way. preference number 2 is option 3, which again, i think has the same environmental review issue that comes to this. the last we saw -- i have the most objections to [speaker not understood] rifkin ha termed the last report ultimate [speaker not understood], that is really an issue. because i think in the community meeting that we have, that is two options that everybody opposed or overwhelmingly opposed. i think, of course, this is the ultimate default and i -- hopefully that won't happen. lastly, i'd like to reque
